Okay, going to Mars is going to be expensive. Not only that, but who we choose to pick on that trip also needs to have the statistically lowest chance of… perishing. So it might be the case that our best scenario is all female crew! The Mars Rover is doing some small work, but there are some things humans are just better at. Failing a Mars Mission (and no, Mars One doesn’t count) would be a big setback, so we need to get our first attempt right. So, who’s best suited for the trip? Well, watch this episode of PBS Space Time to find out why it may be advantageous to have our first mars mission be all women!
